I never noticed that before!

I have a lot of “stuff” in my studio, I admit it.  I try my best to keep it organized, but sometimes when I’m working away on a project it can get a bit “cluttered”.  So you might not notice if I bought a small little treasure.  But, if I added a bookshelf full of books, cleverly filled the little indented area on top with buttons, and then arranged little displays on the top of the shelf, don’t you think someone would notice?  No!  Not one Bunny Hill helper has noticed!

It’s the funniest thing!  It sits at the end of the day bed and they all walk by it every time they’re here!  Nancy sits diagonally across from it while she works at the computer.

Six months from now one of them might say, “oh, when did you get that bookshelf?”  Funny how they notice if there’s a new package of fabric in the studio!

I think a “notice the bookshelf” party is called for. Three bunny helpers are invited.

  • Melody - Oh my goodness! I love the new shelf. The buttons area is so sweet. Would you mind sharing where you bought it?ReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - So sweet! And what about that cute little chick to the right? Is it wearing a bonnet or bunny ears? DonnaReplyCancel

  • Krista - It is odd how you don’t notice things that are right in front of your face! I love the buttons under glass, and the ribbon on spools, the jars, the chickadee, oh just everything!

    BTW, I am hosting a giveaway this week to celebrate my 1st blog birthday. Come by and enter!ReplyCancel

  • Barb - Love the shelf. I was wondering as you were talking if I would notice the bookshelf. HummmmmmReplyCancel

  • Krista - Oh! I forgot to tell you in my earlier post that I am loving your embroidery lessons! To me they are a refresher but a very needed one! I am looking forward to the next one.ReplyCancel

  • Penni - I love the shelf with the buttons but I am afraid that if I were one of your helpers I probably wouldn’t notice either. My husband once grew a mustache and I never noticed. Really! And then one day to tease me about it he shaved half of it off and walked around the house like that all day talking to me. I hate to admit it… but I didn’t notice that either. He had to actually point it out to me.ReplyCancel

  • Tracy - Where did you find what looks to be a “to die for” little bookcase…if you don’t mind me asking!?ReplyCancel

  • Bonnie H - I love the idea of the ribbon on the spools. I have several of those spools but they are kind of plain compared to yours. I think I will do the same thing. The button shelf is wonderful. What a way to keep my cats out of my buttons! Thanks for the ideas!ReplyCancel

  • from little acorns - You now have a daybed in the studio? Is the daybed “my” daybed . . . from Bend? If so . . then you know what that means!. . . It's there for me & I need to fill it! lol! :o)
    (Love the buttons under the glass. . . & the little chick with her kerchief/scarf!)
    xo, BrenReplyCancel

  • Anonymous - Love your little “vignette” so cute. I do this around special holidays and even not as special holidays..I use my old canning jar collection for my buttons and tatting and also use my old wooden spools for ribbons and trims. The ones that don’t get their own spool live in a huge glass cookie jar..so I can at least enjoy them. Your little bun buns make me want to get out mine for my spring vignette. If you have a tea I will bring the pastries..LouiseReplyCancel

  • Kim - I sooo love the buttons under glass! I collect vintage buttons and that is such a great way to show them off! Thanks for sharing your cute bookshelf – I hope someone notices soon!!ReplyCancel

  • pdudgeon - simply wonderful!ReplyCancel

  • Sheri Howard - I would have noticed everything…especially the pink things! That shelf is so cute, and I LOVE the buttons!ReplyCancel

  • Bobbie Lynn - Those are so sweet.ReplyCancel

  • Patty in Erie, PA - Hello my name is Patty and I have a sickness. Tell me can a person have too many bunnies and if so how many are too many? Even though friends have said I do, I don’t think I have too many. They all seem to find a cozy place to live in my home, isn’t that what counts? No bunny should live without a home, right? I feel I’ve come to the right place for an honest, unbiased answer. Oh, and sheep too, and cows and even pumpkins and let’s not forget the snowmen and oh my maybe I do have a problem :^)

  • Anonymous - notice the bookshelf party????
    i’ll bring the cupcakes, you whip up some party hats!!!

  • Carrie P. - Love all the bunnies and buttons. Oh the spools in the background are very pretty too.ReplyCancel

  • Jean - Anne somewhere I have seen a recipe for “Button Cookies” to have for your party… basically they are round sugar cookies (use round cutter or a drinking glass) and then you use a straw to make two little holes for the button holes in the center. Really cute! They would take notice of these too!ReplyCancel

  • Sharyn - Just a note to thank you for the lovely ((free)) bunny hill BOM, I’m charmed off my feet ;)

  • Deb C. - I’m afraid to admit it took me a bit of searching to ‘find the buttons’ you were referring too. When my daughter was very young, she used to throw an absolute fit whenever I rearranged my living rom and cry “put it back, put it back”. I sneak much past her.
    Shall I send her over? She is 10 and does love to make clothes for her Ty Girlz dolls from my scraps.ReplyCancel

  • lovetostitch - Yep!! I definitely would have noticed, and would love to be one of the helpers who come to drop helpful hints to workers during the party!!!!! How fun!! You don’t suppose they are getting immune to bunnies, do you?? LOLReplyCancel

  • W. Latane Barton - bunny, bunny on the wall
    Who is the fairest of them all?
    I’d say it’s bunny tales
    She does things for sales
    and shares her joy around the place
    to put a smile upon my face.ReplyCancel

  • susan - i think thats just means they are super good workers and have their heads in their work!!
    its funny because i work in a fabric shop and i usually can feel new fabric in the shop!!i love the buttons on the shelf, did you put plexiglass on top or something?ReplyCancel
